LPG tanker KING ARTHUR suspect in cutting internet cables in English Canal
BBC Nov 39: A ship dragging its anchor on the seabed in the English Channel cut the three main internet cables to the Channel Islands on Monday, Nov 28. Repair work on the first cable is expected to take a week.
Daragh McDermott from government owned JT said broadband speeds are expected to be slower during peak times. A second ship is on the way from France to repair the second cable and JT says the third cable will be repaired after that. Jersey's coastguard said there will be an investigation to see if the ship dropped anchor in a banned area.
Owners of the King Arthur, Mediterranea di Navigazione, said they were investigating whether it was their ship that caused the problem.
As of 1200 UTC Nov 30, tanker was docked at Terneuzen.
